    Accessories and Registration Storage

    Just got a 2008 C50T. Immediately adding highway guards, a chrome license plate holder, tassels and flame floorboard covers. What others have done to customize their bikes?

    Also where do you keep your registration and proof of insurance? I carry a small handbag so don't want to keep them in my wallet. I'm afraid I would loose or forget them if I put them in my jacket each time I ride.

    Check.
    With a copy of the insurance card with VIN and license plate number in my wallet.
    I run the bike with a single key and keep a spare on my key ring with the house key, etc.
    You never know when you might be taking the key out of the bike and drop it down a storm drain.
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    On my sportster which has no storage I use a "Stash box" from Twisted throttle.com. It fits under the license plate and is about a half inch thick and is lockable.
    The stash box is water resistant, I put my papers sealed in a baggy anyway. Works great. I have a photo of my license plate (all my vehicles) on my cell phone photo gallery in case one of them are stolen.
    Those who beat their swords in to plowshares will work for those who did not.

    COLOR ME GONE! Another victim or ER's BS.

    Now that's a great idea.

    I got a Grifter licence plate storage box from Ebay. $20.
    As long as it's not them that has to pay, no one really minds the debt.

    Ok Mr. old codger I took pictures of my license plates along with the corresponding vehicles; great idea. When I told my wife about this cool idea she looked at me as if I were retarded and asked why I didn't have all these numbers memorized. Wow I need to be careful f this woman.

    I took the pictures of the license plates because I have three four wheel vehicles and two motorcycles and an old sometimes defective memory. If I need to give someone my license number the cell phone photo is a handy way to keep up with my license numbers, well except for my sportster, it has a vanity plate which is my first name plus last initial. That helps me know who I am in case I get lost LOL.

    Done lots of mods to my C50, but not nearly as many as I've done to my C90. On my C50 I've lowered it 2-1/2", added 2-1 exhaust, Mustang seat, risers, and a host of other things.

    As far as a place to store your paperword, being you have a C50T (according to your profile) you already have a wind screen. Invest in a windshield pouch. You can keep your paperwork there along with sunglasses, etc. Or, you can do what I did and utilize the OEM tool compartment located on the left side of the bike just below the seat. Item #11 on the bike.



    Good luck.

    Yikes. Seems like that would be easy pickings for some low-life just walking by.

    If my registration gets stolen while I'm having a bite to eat, but my bike's still there, I'm all good.
    Some people will also keep their papers or registration under their seat in a plastic bag.
    I'm not partial to taking my bike apart when I need stuff.

    I keep mine in the saddle bag in a zip lock bag. Along with emergency contact information.

    You might not be so "good" if they steal your registration with your home address on it AND your garage door opener.

    Many bikes require a key to get "under the seat" but it's quite easy. On others, it's quite difficult even if you have the time and tools. I HATED getting the seat off of my S50.

    You got my attention with that remark though and I'll be moving mine from an unlocked bag to a locked under-seat compartment.

    I keep my registration/insurance card in the tool compartment, under the strap that holds the tool pouch. It's not like I ever need to show it, so it really doesn't need to be at my fingertips.
